Containers for Change

The Containers for Change - Battle of the Schools is over! Representatives from our Sustainability Committee travelled to Express Recycling Depot, Carrara. They saw first-hand the process of how our containers are recycled and precisely what they can be turned into, for example beach benches, buoys and aircraft parts. 

Meaghan Scanlon, the Minister for the Environment, presented the awards and over 1,016 containers were recycled by our school alone. As a community, participants helped our local schools save over 172,000 bottles and cans from landfill. A huge achievement and the students were buzzing! 

We now have a green bin located at the Marble Arch drop-off zone, right near the gate, so it’s a one stop drop for parents, kids and cans. 

Thank you for helping make the world a greener place for our little people!
